A great site and one worth venturing to if it's open. Secluded, a great view to the west, loons around the lake, and just a great place. We were lucky enough to find this site open for 2 nights in late May and camped there both times. Walk out to the peninsula for some nice views of the lake.

Camp Notes:
This was one of the best campsites I have ever seen. The tent pads were phenomenal, and the gorgeous red pines were beautiful. The latrine was full to the brim, but I'm sure that has changed since 2005. The view from the campsite is impressive because the water was crystal clear. This was the first five star campsite that I had ever seen. I did not stay here, but I wish I would have.

Great site, room for up to three tents (maybe one more if you squeeze it in somewhere). The view was good and the best part about this place, to me, was the solitude. There was some old logwork involved in making level tentpads but the elaborate setup in the earlier picture is gone. If you want to camp in the Thunder/Beartrap area, check out this site, it is the best option.

GREAT site. Canoe landing not too bad. Woke up to deer in camp two mornings and saw nobody until the day before we left. OK fishing on the north side of lake. SOLITUDE.... Probably get more than 4 people in the site, but less is better. Latrine needs work.

Was just here and it would appear that some of the original logwork is missing now, but still a SUPERB campsite. We caught walleyes all day long on Rapalas off of the south side of the smallest island.

Multiple tent pads, excellent fire area (boy scout built?), decent fishing right off the site (walleye), great sunsets.
